The rest of my family left right after the wedding. We spent Christmas in Harriman with Doug's sister Melody and her family. It was nice to be able to relax for a while, after a very busy few days.

Kate was intrigued by all the lights and decorations. She was also rather overwhelmed by having four active cousins around. (She looks a bit stunned in some of these pictures.)

We went to church with Mark and Melody's family Sunday morning, and then came home and opened presents. Here Kate watches the proceedings from the safety of Daddy's lap.

Kate got to open a couple of presents too (but needed a little help!)

A toy phone (from the cousins), and a book (from Mom and Dad). Wow!

Doggies: A Counting and Barking Book by Sandra Boynton. I saw it at the library and thought Kate would enjoy it. She does. (The howling page is a favorite.)

Our first Christmas as a family of three!
